Open Source Support Program

We are happy to support qualifying open source projects with free subscriptions for our products. As a core contributor to an open source project, you may qualify for a k6 Cloud subscription, at Developer or Team level, whichever is more appropriate to your needs.

Eligibility Requirements

  • You are a project lead or a regular committer to the project.
  • Your project meets either the Open Source definition or another comparable source-available license.
  • Paid sponsorship, or funding from commercial companies or organizations should not exceed the point where you can afford the expense.
    This includes NGO, education, research, or governmental organizations.
  • You may not provide any paid support, consulting or training services for your project.
  • You may not distribute paid versions of your OSS software.
  • You are not applying on behalf of any paid contributors of the project.
  • Your OSS project has been in active development for a minimum of 3 months.
  • Your project's community is active and you have a Code of Conduct.
  • You release updated builds on a regular basis (introducing at least minor changes every 3 months).

If your project does not meet our eligibility requirements or if you have any questions, please contact us at opensource@k6.io.
Your project may still qualify for possible discounts under other programs.

Subscription Terms

  • Subscription is provided one year for free for the two plans (Developer and Team).
  • Subscription renewal is available on request if your project still meets the requirements.
  • Subscriptions are provided only to core team developers.

Subscription Restrictions

  • Subscription can be used for non-commercial OSS development only. You must purchase a separate license for commercial projects. Load Impact reserves the right to suspend subscriptions which violate this requirement.
  • Use of the software is restricted to the licensed user with no right to transfer the rights to any third parties.
